Celebrate Women’s History Month by visiting the Calvin T. Ryan Library in person or through online resources.

On display on the lower level of the library are materials drawn from our library’s Curriculum and Non-book Collections.  Included in the display are many juvenile literature titles and videos that celebrate the achievements and contributions of women.

Shocking census information (women still make just .77 on the male dollar in this country) and other fascinating facts are available through the library’s catalog from anywhere in the world through the Government Documents’  Just Released News pages.

The Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA) is exhibiting the works of three women artists in the entrance area of the library. This display is sponsored by the UNK Women’s Center.

Among the many resources accessible through the library’s home page are:

  • Contemporary Women’s Issues, a database which indexes books, newsletters and research reports on health and human rights of women around the world.

Additional databases and other library resources related to women’s issues can be found at the Women’s Studies Resource page .

Join the library in celebrating the contributions of women throughout history!
